Thriplow Farms is a 900 hectare (3.5 square miles) farm located just south of Cambridge, UK. We grow a wide variety of crops such as wheat, barley, oilseed rape, peas, beans, oats, linseed & maize. The farm also supports sheep & cattle on herbal & grass leys, as well as multi-species cover crops during the winter.
Techniques like no-till, companion cropping, bi-cropping and mob grazing mean that we are not just trying to farm sustainably – but to actively regenerate the quality and productivity of our soils. Please use the links above to read more about this in the blog, the archived annual reports going back to 1974, and David Walston’s 2015 Nuffield Scholarship report.
A monthly blog about what is happening on the farm, aimed at non-farmers, is available by clicking on the WTFIH link above.
